R1- The bout instantly becomes more dramatic before it starts, with brother Jermell coming up short in a shocking decision loss to Tony Harrison. They are feeling out eachother, but not with too much patience in the process. Charlo is busier and more accurate with the jab between the two. Despite taking a clean left hand late, Charlo gets in a check hook and closes with a looping right before the bell.

R2- Both are looking for leads and manage to catch a good amount of shots from their opponent on the gloves. While Charlo gets in some rights in the first half, the awkward, southpaw stance of Korobov’s is preventing him from getting fully set. In the last half, Korobov starts to land some straight left hands flush on Charlo, with the last of which drawing a reaction from him. Korobov gets the round off clean punching and effective defense.

R3- Charlo is looking lost, and Korobov keeps him running into left hand after left hand. While these punches are landing with a thud and drawing reactions from the crowd, Charlo is walking through them. Korobov also starts to utilize the right hook, whether it is to follow up on the left or to keep Charlo at bay.

R4- The left of Korobov is pretty much landing at will, as he repeatedly beats Charlo to the punch. Korobov is also controlling the range, and usually getting out of harm’s way when Charlo gets anything going.

R5- From the moment the bell rings, Korobov is able to land straight lefts as he pleases. He is being meticulous with the shot though, as he is mostly using it as a counterpunch. Charlo is still looking lost.

R6- Despite the strong four-round stretch by Korobov, Charlo would snap out of it and really establish himself in this fight from here. Charlo is not taking as much unecessary shots at all, and his output considerably increases. The jab is landing, and even when he flicks it, Charlo is able to get in some rights behind it.

R7- The right hand of Charlo is hitting home before and more often than Korobov’s left hand. At times, Charlo is catching Korobov coming in with left hooks to either the head or body.

R8- A nice and close exchange opens up the round. Perhaps Charlo’s power was the difference, as he is able to land his shots with a more eye-catching impact. Charlo is outjabbing Korobov from the outside too and is landing the better counterpunches between the two.

R9- Some good technical stuff here, as both are catching eachother with good counters at a continuous pace. Despite eating some lefts and right hooks, Charlo is beating Korobov to the punch with his rights and landing more often. The uppercut of Charlo is landing pretty much whenever he throws it, and he is outjabbing him convincingly. With Charlo having more success with his boost of pressure, he is able to utilize effective aggression in the round.

R10- Whenever they hook with eachother, Charlo is able to get his lead hand hook in more often due to his advantages in speed, reach, and volume. Most of the scoring in the round is courteousy of the jab of Charlo, but he has success with his combination punching as well.

R11- Unaware as to why Joe Goosen cited this as a big round for Charlo, as Korobov had left-hand target practice throughout. Korobov most notably landed two big left hand leads in the first thirty seconds, but Charlo did not go anywhere. Despite getting in a couple of check hooks, this was definitely Korobov’s round.

R12- The right eye of Korobov is looking bad, and perhaps why he couldn’t see the big left hook from Charlo coming, as it wobbles him badly. Korobov is able to stay composed and gain distance, but Charlo staggers him again with a right. Charlo gets in some more left hooks and one more big right hand before the bell, but tires himself out by the one-minute mark. This prevents him from securing a stoppage allows Korobov to tag Charlo with some shots late, but nothing major. Just short of a 10-8 round for Charlo, but an excellent finish for him, nonetheless. Despite some questionable judging (the 119-108 scorecard was pathetic), Charlo ultimately prevails in the hardest fight yet of his career. Korobov had a great momentum going in the first half and some other solid moments after, but I do believe that Charlo’s mindset about his brother’s loss had played into that. Charlo definitely showed a greater variety, especially with the jab, and had the biggest round of the fight. I don’t understand why many people consider this a robbery, considering Charlo controlled most of the second half of the fight, convincingly outgunning Korobov for five of the last six rounds. Still, I can understand a draw or a 7-5 decision for Korobov, but nothing more in his favor. I do wish that these two ran it back right after, and I’d pick Charlo to win more convincingly. Unfortunately for Korobov, his bad luck would not go away, as he’d get stung by bad judging and injuries in his last three fights, which were all fights I feel that he should have won.
